M is for Maritime

I've been working on a Maritime Alphabet Poster. You know, because I have absolutely nothing else to do. Something along these lines:


And I was hoping to solicit your help! I have a whole list of words jotted down for alphabetical illustrations of the nautical and oceanic variety. And I would to know what you would come up with. So leave me a comment with your ideas for any illustration you would like to see in the poster. Obviously, A, C, and J excluded. ;) Thanks!

So so cute so far. I'd expect nothing less.

All I can think of is:
